Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by TobiasJonsson, Mar 7, 2008.


  1. "My" band have been playing together for about a year, all of the member is around 15-16 years old.
    during a short schoolbreak we turnd to a private studio and recorded a short demo of two songs that you can lissten to here on our myspace:

    Dude, what´s with the hair...? :D Some points of critisism. I think the scream-vox are overdone on the Eden-song. Should only be used to emphasize some parts. Also seems like the lyrics are forced sometimes. And the drummer should lay off the highhat once in a while. Sounds like it keeps going on forever.

    Promising, considering your age.
     
  5. Are you refering to my hair on myspace? if so i only have to say that it's a old picture. i got tired of it and did dreadlocks of it all (althought i thought it was charming in som strange way;))
    About that scraming thing I agree with you. We'll be thinking of that in the future:p
    Thanks overall for the critic!

    wow, I really like it! I love metal bands with female vocalists, and yours is definitely a keeper!

    you guys sound kinda like After Forever in a way, ever listen to them?

    Not bad. I'm not the hugest fan of bands like Nightwish (which I'm assuming you draw some inspiration from), but you guys have some obvious talent. The production was very nice as well. Very tight.

    hm...


    try and switch up your bass lines so that they don't match the guitarist all the time. A little diversity is a good thing.



    also: tell your vocalist to ditch the dreads. She'd be alot prettier without em ;)

    heh, sweet!

    say, are you guys gonna be touring the US anytime soon? (I imagine not, but I figured I'd ask anyway).
     
  19. Haha that made me laugh a bit:D
    No we wont tour US in the near future (And not anywere else by the way).
    We dont have the time, money or experience yet.
    For now we are lucky to play once every other month:smug::meh:

    You guys sound really good. No seriously, you are well beyond your years. You call yourself death metal...but actually you guys have a progressive vibe going on. Check out Opeth. I think you will like them.

    Nice to see so many bands using keys these days.

    I think if you guys stick together and dont get distracted you will go far. Just stay focused and remeber the music always comes first . The songs always come first. Keep your egos in check. Dont expect quick and easy fame. It may take a lot of work and many years of toil. Don't give up. It's all about the music anyway, not fame and fortune. Always put the music first. Never stop developing the mastery of your instruments and voice. Eventually you all may become so good that you cannot be ignored.
